Equity & Community Engagement
Kent Denver School fosters a culture where all differences and identities across gender, ability, religion, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity and economic background are valued, celebrated and recognized as an essential quality of the education offered in our dynamic learning environment.

Our Philosophy

What we teach tells us who matters and what is worth learning. Therefore, it is essential that our curriculum reflect diverse perspectives and that cultural competency is embedded deeply across all departments and disciplines. By doing so, our students will learn how to engage with different perspectives, think critically and develop solutions by connecting with others to bring out their collective best—skills that will serve them well in college and beyond.

Embracing diverse perspectives strengthens our school culture and educational programs and bolsters students’ ability to identify, analyze and act on issues of equality, justice and inclusion. We are serious about our responsibility to provide the academic and social–emotional skills necessary for students to successfully engage in a culturally diverse world.
